Rudbeckia hirta

Gloriosa Daisy, Black-eyed Susan

Relatives of wild plants from eastern North America, Coneflowers brighten perennial borders and meadow and wild gardens with months of late season color. Flowers are daisy-like in shades of orange and yellow, and some are double-petaled. Tall, tough, and easy to grow in all but soggy soils, they are cheerful and showy in a vase. Annuals are available in cell packs in spring, or sow directly in the garden like other wildflowers. Perennials are sold in containers in spring.
